I almost bought that (the 18i20, right?) a few months ago because of the number of inputs and, well, it's Focusrite so it's gonna be good quality for the price point. And unless Sam Ash starts carrying the UR44, the Scarlett will probably win eventually since I can put it on my Sam Ash card the next time they run a 12 months or more "same as cash deal."
My question is: are you happy with your Scarlett?

Bane wrote:If everything is armed by DSP, then really it should have a standalone capability. This cannot be marketed as standalone because in the true sense, all DSP routing and FX need to be editable on the device itself without a computer. This is what we have seen with the MOTU and RME interfaces. Normally I'll just play music through my ipod or keyboard/guitar then disconnect the USB plug and see if it continues, which is how I found out my Scarlett remembers its routing until it's unplugged from the outlet.
